One Can helps Many Hands make light work of bridge

When design studio Many Hands were commissioned to brighten up a railway bridge in South London, a conversation with Bradite provided the solution – One Can.

Working with Greenwich London Borough Council to improve the appearance of the public space, Many Hands painted a multi-coloured design for the Plumstead railway bridge. The design was created by Make Good who work with local communities to improve the environment. In need of a high-performance coating that would provide superior protection, Many Hands turned to the Bradite technical specialists, whose suggestions had proved invaluable for previous projects, including the HQ of cycling lifestyle brand RAPHA.

On this occasion, the chosen finish had to satisfy the technical requirements of the Network Rail M24 certified paint system. “They have strict guidelines about what paints to use on their structures, so they were given the details about Bradite One Can and they approved it,” explains Many Hands Director, Luke James.

The job took ten days, with One Can’s extensive palette of RAL colours supplying everything required for the job. “We’ve painted a number of bridges in the past with different paints and some have been difficult,” Luke says, but adds: “the One Can was nice to paint with and, being water-based, it was easy to clean up afterwards.”

One Can acts as a primer, undercoat and finish all in one. It is low-odour, quick drying and has the ability to adhere to almost any substrate, both interior and exterior.
